Providing computing solutions for exascale challenges
DataNet offers lightweight metadata management, backed by a flexible database which allows convenient access to the stored objects.
DataNet enables lightweight metadata management backed by a flexible database which allows convenient access to the stored objects. One of the main goals of DataNet is to make it usable from the largest set of languages and platforms possible. That is why it uses HTTP as a basis for transferring data between backing servers and the service, and − for improved compatibility and automation− we applied the EST methodology to structure the messages sent to and from the repositories, which makes the integration process straightforward.
DataNet also features in-transit encryption to ensure the security of the Metadata while being moved between components. The pluggable security mechanism also ensures that access to the platform is restricted to the appropriate group of people to prevent leakage of stored data. DataNet’s API enables both the integration with other PROCESS components such as the IEE portal as well as direct access from external components.
